Farewell MCI, an Epilogue

"It's MCI on the phone," said my assistant.

"Hello, this is MCI. We got your email. Sorry you have been having trouble. We will put you through to technical support now."

"Er. Okay. But I'm already transferring carriers."

"We are very sorry about that. Now I shall put you through to technical support."

"Er. Okay."

"Hello. MCI. What is the trouble you are having?"

"There's a number in the UK that MCI won't connect to."

"And what is the trouble with that?"

"Well, I want to talk to this number in the UK and..." Then there was a click as the phone went dead at their end.

I'm glad I just left MCI. I'm happy I'm not an investor in MCI. I wonder if they hung up on me, or if they just aren't very good at this whole making telephone calls thing.
